#HolidayPeachy #FathersDay #June182023#NewYork #Manhattan @AmmosEstiatorio @AmmosNewYork by #DimitrisNakos Is Where You Should Take Dad to Show Your Love and Appreciation! Always Highly Recommended by @ManhattanPeachy #PeachyDeegan Ammos is the Best for Holidays!

Founder and Owner of Ammos Estiatorio, Dimitris Nakos with his sons who are each pursuing apprenticeships at Ammos: brothers Georgios Nakos, barback, above and Antonis Nakos, server, below
Executive Chef Bruno Marino of Ammos Estiatorio has created winning entrees to celebrate your DAD exclusively at 52 Vanderbilt Avenue just steps west of Grand Central Terminal
Happiness is White Santorini Linguine crafted by Executive Chef Bruno Marino!
Originated from the Santorini Island of Greece in the storied tradition, this recipe is reimagined by the brilliance of Bruno!  Succulent U8 sized shrimp star in this island dish sensation accentuated by three types of bell peppers, garlic and diced onions.  Heightened with Santorini wine, it's further flavored by delectable feta and parmesan culminating in a culinary extravaganza to celebrate Father's Day!  It is delicious any and every day according to Peachy Deegan who is honored to be among the first to try it and it's one of the best Ammos hits ever she says.
A fish is just a fish until it arrives in the kitchen of Ammos Estiatorio.
Under the tutelage of Executive Chef Bruno Marino, it's transformed into a delicacy unsurpassed.  Here please meet the Glossa, a Mediterranean Fluke, which perches upon a Greek Orzo Semolina.  Green peas, Bell pepper, Corn, String Beans, Carrots, Onions and Wild Mushrooms add color and nutrition to this Father's Day feast beautifully garnished by radicchio and frisee.  Ladolemo sauce of fresh squeezed meyer lemons, evoo, a touch of saffron and salt and black pepper flavor this further.
Celebratory dots of beets, wild berry and balsamic creatively punctuate the Marino masterpiece.
The Meth'Imon 7 is a classic wine from Greece that is a versatile winner deserving of your Father's Day attention.  Syrah, grenache rouge, and limniona, a particular grape that grows in Thessaly in Greece are well-blended achieving an ideal wine that pairs spectacularly with veal, meat or fish.  The notes are evocative of fruits of the forest and this wine is easy to drink and pleasant on the palate, crafted by Dougos the number one winemaker in Greece.
Finally, Baklava has a party with chocolate sauce, strawberries and pistachio ice cream to seal the deal on Father's Day.  Made on premises, this Baklava is designed with greek honey, cinnamon, phyllo, pistachios and walnuts which combine for a sweet treat to guarantee bliss!
Ammos Estiatorio continues to earn our Highest Recommendation.

From city to country no matter where your feet take you, New Balance Fresh Foam X 1080v12 Lounge Around in color Libra with grey violet and tobacco are the absolute utmost in comfort. You will feel like you are walking on the clouds in Billionaire's Row each and every time you put them on - they glide on like a breeze and secure your foot in whether you are just popping out for a slice of pizza down the block or walking ten miles downtown!
They strike the right balance between feminine with the light lilac and fashionable versatile as they can be dressed up or down. Quiet luxury certainly seems to be the buzzword of the moment and the real life people of Succession (you know, the types of people the fabulous show is based on!) certainly wear these.
They are stylish with just this hint of color that does not overwhelm. Though we obviously like their bright, energizing colors at other times, this is a great hue when your outfit has a lot of splash elsewhere. They are upscale enough to transition into smart casual looks from day to night as well. Our panelists of contrasting ages and geographical locations agree that this is a model of comfort that performs to perfection universally.
It's a fact that Manhattan has dirt and there's not much you can do about it.
However, what you can do is wash your sneakers and these are just as fabulous after a spin in the washer for us!  We do not recommend the dryer - we did not try it though.  Air dry is great.
If they can make it here, they can make it anywhere.
New Balance says:
If we only made one running shoe, that shoe would be the 1080. What makes the 1080 unique isn’t just that it’s the best running shoe we make, it’s also the most versatile. The 1080 delivers top-of-the-line performance to every kind of runner, whether you’re training for world-class competition, or catching a rush hour train. The Fresh Foam X 1080v12 represents a consistent progression of the model’s signature qualities. The smooth transitions of the pinnacle underfoot cushioning experience are fine-tuned with updated midsole mapping, which applies more foam to wider areas of the midsole and increases flexibility at the narrower points. The ultra-modern outlook is also reflected in the 1080’s upper construction. This Lounge Around edition brings the 1080 into your work-from-home life with neutral colors and soft, premium materials designed for everyday wear.

A Good Person starts off swimmingly, literally!  It's a human-interest, feel-good movie over its course of two hours, and both Florence Pugh and Morgan Freeman deliver spectacular performances of troubled characters with heart.  The quality of performances supersedes the script; the pronounced authenticity is laudable.

Rod Stewart: we know you like model trains so check out the ones here in the basement!

Pugh proves to be a chameleon, the goal of all great actors, as she makes a night and day change from when we last saw her in Olivia Wilde's Don't Worry Darling.  We like her character's commitment to the difference between decor and decorum.

Everyone has problems and these characters certainly do: this is a movie for anyone battling adversity.

So often, movies celebrate what is not real.
This one celebrates truth and reality; A Good Person is Recommended by Whom You Know.

Celebrated writer/director Zach Braff’s (TV’s “Scrubs,” “Garden State”) latest film A Good Person, from Metro-Goldwyn Mayer Pictures, will be available for purchase on Blu-ray on May 30.

Written and directed by Braff, the film sees Braff once again return to the director’s chair nearly twenty years after his Sundance breakout directorial debut, “Garden State.” The film is produced by Zach Braff, Pamela Koffler, Florence Pugh, Christine Vachon, Christina Piovesan and Noah Segal.

A Good Person stars Academy Award® nominee Florence Pugh (“Don’t Worry Darling”, “Little Women”), Molly Shannon (TV’s “The White Lotus”, “Saturday Night Live”), Chinaza Uche (TV’s “Wool”), Celeste O’Connor (“Ghostbusters: Afterlife”) and Academy Award® Winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”, “The Shawshank Redemption”).

A Good Person will be available on Blu-ray on May 30.

Daniel (Morgan Freeman) is brought together with Allison (Florence Pugh), the once thriving young woman with a bright future who was involved in an unimaginable tragedy that took his daughter’s life. As grief-stricken Daniel navigates raising his teenage granddaughter and Allison seeks redemption, they discover that friendship, forgiveness, and hope can flourish in unlikely places.

Since making her debut with “Mean It” in October 2019, Gracie Abrams has emerged as one of the most compelling songwriters of her generation, earning the admiration of such likeminded artists as Lorde, Billie Eilish, and Olivia Rodrigo. A consummate songwriter who names Joni Mitchell as her most formative influence, she penned her first song at age eight, then went on to amass a devoted following on the strength of her emotionally intimate lyrics and DIY sensibilities. As her profile rose, Abrams was named an artist to watch by tastemaker outlets like Pigeons & Planes, Fader, and i-D, in addition to being crowned one of seven breakout female musicians by Vogue UK. With the arrival of her debut project minor in summer 2020, she received glowing reviews from the likes of NME, who praised her “painfully honest tales of heartbreak draped in delicate melodies that carry much more intrigue than the usual run-of-the-mill singer-songwriter.” Executive-produced by Blake Slatkin — and also made with leading producers like Joel Little and benny blanco — the seven-song effort features her beloved singles “21,” “I miss you, I’m sorry,” and “Long Sleeves.” In 2021, Abrams returned with This Is What It Feels Like, a 12-track project exploring such complex emotions as self-betrayal, insecurity, and failed attempts at connection. Soon after completing her sold-out North American headline tour for This Is What It Feels Like, she set to work on her long-awaited debut album Good Riddance. Released in February, and produced by Aaron Dessner of The National, Good Riddance finds Abrams opening up about a recent period of intense transformation, bringing even more honesty and depth to her lyrical storytelling. Praising Good Riddance as “one of 2023’s best debuts,” Rolling Stone stated that the album “shows a serious command of autobiographical songwriting” and hailed Abrams as “one of pop’s buzziest young artists.” Upon its release Abrams set out on a sold-out North American headline tour and is currently supporting Taylor Swift on select dates for her blockbuster Eras Tour.

G Flip is becoming the role model they never had growing up. A near-lifelong musician who took up drumming at just nine-years-old, the rising superstar makes the kind of high-powered rock/pop music that could only come from the heart and mind of a drummer. As shown on their debut smash single “About You”—a 2018 release named a Best New Track by Pitchfork, with Rolling Stone soon hailing G Flip as an “Artist You Need To Know”—the Australian singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist matches their potent musicianship with equal parts sonic originality and fantastically outspoken point-of-view (an element informed by their experience as a queer, non-binary artist). Born in Melbourne, the L.A.-based phenomenon now ushers in a bold new era with their latest single "Be Your Man" and more new music on the way.

On “Be Your Man”, G Flip presents a heart-on-sleeve love song about defying society’s narrow-minded expectations of what a relationship should look like. G Flip reveals their deep-rooted instinct for rhythm and its potential to impact the listener on a purely visceral level—an element honed through years of playing in garage bands, in addition to writing and self-producing their own material in their bedroom studio. G Flip’s nonstop hustle eventually led to the breakout success of “About You,” along with critical triumphs such as making their widely acclaimed debut at SXSW. With their debut album About Us released in 2019, they moved to L.A. in 2021 and soon set to work on new music. Now gearing up for their first-ever U.S. headline tour, G Flip hopes that their one-of-a-kind sound and sensibilities might ultimately set off a shock wave of inspiration, empowering people everywhere to embrace their truth with absolute abandon.

The alias Moore Kismet (meaning "more than fate") is a representation of 18-year-old musician Omar Davis that expresses their continual creative journey. Moore Kismet has garnered support from some of the biggest media platforms in the world. Constantly leading the charge, they were included in Billboard's “21 Under 21” list three years in a row (2020-2022) and were named the youngest artist to ever perform at both Lollapalooza and EDC Las Vegas in 2021. Moore Kismet excels as a multidisciplinary creative with a focus on visual arts, filmmaking and graphic design. Moore Kismet’s unique production style and stage presence is anything but predictable, which has set them apart from the crowd. Releasing their debut album UNIVERSE this past June, the world of Moore Kismet exploded.

LANY have quietly cracked the mainstream on their own terms as one of the most ubiquitous, unpredictable, and undeniable alternative rock bands of this era. Tallying billions of streams, selling out legendary arenas, and earning widespread critical acclaim, the platinum-certified Los Angeles group consistently deliver rafter-reaching anthems anchored by airtight songcraft and the outsized personality of enigmatic frontman and songwriter Paul Jason Klein.Thus far, they’ve earned four gold singles—“Malibu Nights,” “Super Far,” “I Quit Drinking” [with Kelsea Ballerini], and “Mean It” [with Lauv]—in addition to scoring platinum status with “ILYSB.” Nominated for “Best Pop Tour” by Pollstar, their energetic, entrancing, and ever-evolving live show continues to captivate fans on multiple continents as a huge draw worldwide. LANY’s 2021/2022 World notably Tour touched down in 17 countries highlighted by sellouts everywhere. They’ve also collaborated with artists such as Julia Michaels in addition to inciting the applause of everyone from GQ and WWD to Rolling Stone and Interview Magazine who went as far as to cite their breakout Malibu Nights as “the quintessential 2018 heartbreak album.” At the same time, Paul has unassumingly asserted himself as a modern style icon with features from Harper’s Bazaar, Nylon, and Who What Wear. Marni creative director Francesco Risso even referred to Paul as a “muse,” and the brand has outfitted him on tour and for various events.

Born outside Philadelphia, Lizzy McAlpine originally gained recognition when she began to share original songs and covers on Soundcloud and YouTube. In 2020, Lizzy released her debut album, Give Me A Minute, chronicling the beginning and end of a romantic relationship. Lizzy's second studio album five seconds flat (2022), which includes singles "all my ghosts," "erase me (feat. Jacob Collier)" as well as "ceilings," which debuted at No. 75 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and continues to see week over week growth with nearly 235 million streams and counting. Lizzy has performed on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon," "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," "Ellen" and for NPR Music's Tiny Desk Concert. Most recently, Lizzy completed “The End of The Movie” tour, a run of headline dates across the U.S. which sold out immediately. Deemed “a great storyteller” by NPR Music, more from the acclaimed artist is imminent.

#TerrificTakeout #InauguralReview #BjorkCafeandBistro by #ExecutiveChef and #Owner #UlrikaBengtsson and #Owner #SabinaLindmark

Founder, Executive Chef and Owner, Ulrika Bengtsson

It's not who you know, it's WHOM YOU KNOW and now we know Ulrika, Founder, Owner and Executive Chef of Bjork Cafe on Park Avenue in Manhattan's Scandinavia House, a cultural house for all Scandinavian countries.  Open since October 2022, Bjork Cafe is owned equally by Ulrika Bengtsson and Sabina Lindmark, whom we look forward to meeting another day.  Originally there was a birch tree inside here, and that is what the word Bjork means in Swedish. It's pronounced Bee-ork.  Originally from the southwest of Sweden, Ulrika first graduated from Culinary School in Sweden and came to New York in 1991.  You may know her from Ulrika's, which was in the East 60's from 1999 to 2006 and we are sorry we missed it.  Later, she worked in a Hotel and ran creperies and catering.  
We believe this is our first Swedish restaurant experience ever!
We are so pleased to expand our coverage of Swedish people and previously we've interviewed Henrik...he has a lot of time now for dinners and movies (watch the videos below to see what we mean!) we surmise so we do hope he is reading this one.

New York Rangers
Henrik Lundqvist
You'll notice the modern, clean, classy interior right away.
We were greeted with a Lingon berry Spritzer, which is similar to a sparkling Cranberry soda.  The delightful effervescence was a sparking start and we ordered a green salad of Crispy Greens with Lemon and Olive Oil: super fresh and bright!
Ulrika aptly recommended we try the Smorgasbord plate: Gravlax, mustard sauce, pickled herring, herb herring, Jansson's temptation, red beet salad, meatballs (beef), lingonberries, pickled cucumber, and boiled potatoes.  We'd highly recommend this as well, particularly if this is an introduction to Swedish food for you too.  Every element of this extravaganza was professionally prepared and spectacular in its own right.  We liked the fish the most and the amazing meatballs!
Our favorite edible of the day was the Toast Skagen: cold water shrimp, lemon wedge, dill, bibb salad and toast to spread it on!  We adored the brilliant flavoring of the dill with the shrimp and seasonings that really impressed our palate and would highly recommend you all try this.
Note pictures are always unedited.
You excel like Ulrika or we do not publish.
The menu has great depth, and the open-faced sandwich selection absolutely hits the spot.  
On the left, please meet Herring and Egg and on the right please meet Roast beef and remoulade.  The crispy onions on top really made our day!  The freshness level of all dishes tried was highly commendable and extraordinary.  The pickled persuasion of carrots, cauliflower, onion, mayo, curry and tumeric deliver knockout flavor that will wow you.
Ooooh how we loooooove bacon!  And you will find it with Lingonberries under the Savory Potato Waffles section.  Lingonberries are an artic berry, similar to a cranberry.  They're found in many Scandanavian countries we understand and this authentic nod to their culture is one you absolutely should experience.  The sparkling contrast between savory and sweet and crunchy and smooth is an added bonus to the experience!
If you think hot dogs are just hot dogs, first of all you've never had one in New York then and the top of the heap is this edition by Ulrika at Bjork Cafe: Frankfurter Sausage is going to be among the best you have ever had.  Perched perfectly on a bed of flavorful, creamy mashed potatoes, this is sourced from Schaller and Weber  and arrives in style with pickled cucumber, mustard and those phenomenal crispy onions!  These pickles in particular put all other pickles to shame.
Prathamesh Satardekar was a terrific server and also has excellent phone skills, superior to many Manhattan restaurant phone answerers!
The festivity of the Main Course: Brisket with Root Veggies is a homage to carnivores internationally!  It is exactly as colorful as you see here which accurately predicts the wondrous flavors that combine to make this a tremendous feast.  For us it hit the spot on a rainy day and we would also commend the cast iron presentation.   Finally, baked cod with beets, capers and butter is perfection for the lighter side  and we reveled in its straightforward simplicity.

Bjork Cafe is Terrific Takeout!

We look forward to seeing what they do next.
